Joostenberg Estate ‘Philip Albert’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

R195.00

The first Myburgh to farm at Joostenberg was Philipus Albertus Myburgh and five generations later his offspring are still tilling the soil and acting as custodians of this little patch of earth. This is a classically styled Cabernet leaning towards the Old World.

Grapes were hand-picked and de-stemmed. Fermentation occurred in small open-topped tanks with regular punch-downs. Maturation occurred in small, French-oak “hogsheads” (300L barrels) for a period of 22 months (17% new). Includes 8% Merlot.

Christian Eedes: “Red and black berries, crushed leaves and earth on the nose while the palate is medium bodied and very nicely balanced, the finish long and dry. Classically styled, it has a moderate alcohol of 13.5% which serves it very well. 93/100”

Tyrrel & Anette Myburgh Tyrrel and Anette are the 5th generation of Myburghs on the Joostenberg farm in Paarl. They strongly believe in the fundamental importance of origin. This manifests itself in the vineyards by farming organically and often without irrigation. The winemaking philosophy avoids obtrusion as much as they deem is possible without compromising quality.
